Music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins has announced the inaugural Get Loud awareness day and a series of exclusive intimate gigs.
Tinie Tempah, Giggs, Katy B, Alison Moyet, Madness and Squeeze are among the artists backing the initiative by playing live sessions on Tuesday 8 June. Further artists are expected to be announced in coming weeks.
Julie Whelan, Nordoff Robbins chief executive, said: ‘Launching our first Get Loud awareness day is an exciting milestone for Nordoff Robbins. On 8 June, some amazing artists will be supporting Nordoff Robbins by performing a Get Loud gig and people up and down the county will be putting on their own fundraising event.
‘Through Get Loud, we want to raise awareness of our life changing work and funds to help support the development of our services. Our goal is to ensure that more people in more parts of the county have access to music therapy. Music reaches people in a way that nothing else can, please join us and Get Loud for Nordoff Robbins!’
An online prize draw hosted by official ticketing partner Ticketmaster will open on 26 May. Those wanting to win a pair of tickets to see their favourite acts up close and personal will be asked to donate £3 to the charity. Successful entrants will then be announced on 27 May.
